Police warn persons in possession of illegal firearms to submit them

By James Agberebi

The Osun State Police Command has called on members of the public who are in possession of illegal firearms to submit them at the Divisional Police Headquarters nearest to them.

 This was disclosed in a statement by spokesperson for the Commissioner of Police Osun State Command, Osogbo, Opalola Yemisi Olawo.

Olawo said it is in compliance with the directives of the Inspector-General of Police, Ag. IGP Kayode Egbetokun, toward ensuring a serene society and enforcing law and order in the Country.

She said the directive is targeted at addressing the proliferation and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms in the state.

The spokesperson stated that there is no punitive measures attached to the submission of the firearms; no one will be arrested/ detained.

She therefore urged members of the public to go to the Police Station nearest to them and freely submit arms in their possession.
